Conference Presentation: Temperature Controlled Distribution Partnership and Technology Working Together

We had the pleasure to welcome Luiz Alberto Barberini, Head of External Manufacturing, LatAm, Bayer at last year's Temperature Controlled Logistics Conference last year. Here he discusses why Brazil’s vast geography and lacking infrastructure pose a unique challenge for logistics professionals. He delved deeper into how these issues can be mitigated through smart supply chain management, streamlines logistics, and open communication with supply chain partners. He looked into establishing a governance model that strives to minimise stress in the relationship and create value.

Sea Freight: The Switch from Air-freight to sea-freight Solutions

Saddam Huq, Senior Manager Quality for Distribution & Cold Chain Management at GSK Vaccines analysed the pros and cons of the 4PL model to determine if it’s right for your company. He further assesses the various models available in the current market to select the best fit for you. Discover opportunities that can drive your supply chain efficiencies forward with the 4PL model.

Implementing Global Standards to ensure end2end GDP compliance

Neil Piper, Solution’s Consultant, GS1 UK provided his insights at the Temperature Controlled Logistics conference and shared how GS1’s global standards can effectively operate as a GDP toolkit, provided real-life examples of how standards can be used to strengthen regulatory compliance and looked to develop best-practice GDP compliance strategy.

The pocket guide to smart warehouse management

Across the pharmaceutical supply chain, losses associated with temperature lapses are estimated to be worth £320bn globally. To ensure the profitability of the pharmaceutical industry and patient safety, supply chains must limit the risk of damage to products.

Warehouses are a critical area of risk due to the hectic pace of operations and potential for errors in judgment or processes by workers. To ensure the safe storage and continuity of supply for pharmaceutical products, supply chain leaders must operate with smart warehouse management in mind.

Boosting Your Clinical Supply Chain Performance With Digital Technologies

In a recent global pharma logistics market report, logistics decision makers note a 63% success rate of undamaged goods. However, this makes a third of shipments presumably unsuccessful. Good practice regulations and guidelines have been created to correct this, but they allow for many different methods for managing temperatures in pharma logistics, some of which may not be very effective for their purpose. From both a patient safety and business perspective, real-time monitoring technology eases the mind of the customer as well as supporting specific logistical operations and delivering relevant data in real-time in order to optimise the supply chain.

Ahead of this year's Temperature Control and Logistics forum 2020, Pharma IQ spoke exclusively to Ada Pálmadóttir, MBA, MPharm, Business Development Director, Controlant, and Jessie VanderVeen VP Marketing & Communications, Controlant, on digital technology solutions to deliver on-demand visibility for life science products requiring low temperature control and quality protection.

  • Solutions for improving data retrieval and removing supply-chain blind spots

Tackling Temperature Excursions: Risks, Challenges and Solutions

A typical excursion can take over 40 labour hours to investigate and involves input from multiple departments. Reducing that time by 10% per investigation through better collaboration efforts can save hundreds of thousands of pounds for a pharmaceutical organisation.

Ahead of this year's Temperature Control and Logistics forum 2020, Pharma IQ spoke exclusively to Saddam Huq, Global QA Senior Manager, Distribution & Cold Chain, GSK Vaccines about temperature excursions on a global scale and managing the risks associated with different regions, freight types and the challenges of data management.

This report also includes additional webinar learnings from Hashim Ahmed, GL Supply Chain Integrity Senior Analyst, GSK, who shares workable CAPAs and best practices for getting to the real root cause of temperature deviations, which remains a fundamental problem within the cold chain.
